What does GS-911 do?

« Back to Table of Contents

What is it?

GS-911 is a unique software and hardware combination that allows the BMW enthusiast the ability to communicate with the control modules in a safe and controlled manner. In the true spirit of adventure associated with these motorcycles, the tool is available with both WiFi and USB interfaces, allowing you to use it wherever adventure may take you.

It has all the advanced features to do most of your maintenance, from advanced Service functions on the Engine controllers, bleeding of the ABS units, to resetting Service Reminders.

What is it not?

It is not a mechanic. It does not automagically fix the problem - it still requires human intervention. Please don't expect the device to teach you to become a master technician.

The GS-911 is a tool, not an online service manual.  We can not possibly document every function and procedure you can do with it for every year and model of BMW motorcycle that GS-911 can be used with.

What else do I need?

A good repair manual. There are good 3rd party manuals with good literature on the BMW bike models and most dealerships sell model specific Technical Repair DVDs. In addition, there are great technical DVDs by Jim von Baden that are available through our online store, directly from Jim and through most of our distributors.
